Summary (from Goodreads):

Sixteen-year-old Quinn Hardwick’s having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a home, her dad’s gambling addiction has flared back up and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend—until he ruined her life, that is.

So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn’s going to do is forgive and forget. She’s determined to remove him from her life and even the score all at once—by getting him fired.

But getting rid of Wesley isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to just get over it.

Amazon “Book Depository


I am loving this book so far! The main character works at a medieval restaurant, which I have never seen before, and the book is filled with medieval dialect. I can’t wait to keep reading to find out how Wesley James actually ruined Quinn’s life!

King Henry VIII won’t shut up.

Spending more time with Wesley is the last thing that I should be doing. And yet I find myself telling him yes.
